Cards (Japanese: 護符 Charms) are an element of multiplayer battles in the two Nintendo DS installments of the Fire Emblem series, Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and Fire Emblem: New Mystery of the Emblem: Heroes of Light and Shadow. Any multiplayer team can have one card attached to it. That card will then provide an additional effect. Depending on the card used, this additional effect will be applied to either the player's team, the opposing team, or both.
